Getting down to “Nitty Gritty”


by Tom Valentine


When asked what to do in this insane society, I usually suggest “study your New Testament Bible.” Of course I usually get a weird look in return. Now, I will explain my reason: All fault or blame belongs on humans thinking they can be God—perhaps the  “original sin.”

Humanism, the religion of humanists, is a firm belief in the undesigned, accidental causes for today’s mass of unthinking misguided people inhabiting and consuming the planet. Humanism is behind several other “isms” that misdirect collective thinking.

Humanists, of which I was one in my misguided youth, like to blame every problem people have shared throughout history on “religion.” Overlooking that their own philosophy is a religion, they attack “organized belief in a Creator God,” as the basic source of conflict between peoples. Evolution theory is the base premise of “scientism,”— the villain.
Why else such sound and fury about simply teaching Creationism?

To illustrate: The following is from the website Climate depot, which takes issue with the “Scientism” of Global warming propaganda:

“The authors basically extrapolated from a single data point…it was all pure speculation and crazy extrapolation. How could there be fraud when there was not any data here in the first place?”

Today, we are often provided a clear look at the illogic of humanist thinking (hubris); if we are logical enough to see past the many blinders thrown up to block our view.

Most of the blinders come from controlled media who are in the thrall of scientism, which is nuanced by labeling it science. Use this definition of science put forth by my favorite philosopher George Santayana:

“Science is neither a method nor a body of knowledge. It is a body of changing learned opinion aspiring to be true. There are certain facts about nature and history; our grasp of those facts is constantly changing.”

Santayana declined to be labeled; he denied being called a pragmatist, though much of his thinking was practical; he preferred to be known as a “metaphysical naturalist” which I would accept as a label for how I think, if my thinking had depth enough for a label.

During the last 20 years my daily work consisted of pouring over weekly “Scientific” journals such as Nature and Science, both highly respected and “peer-reviewed”, along with a number of magazines known for accurate reporting on technical biological topics. The purpose of this heavy reading was to document biological research from which I could extract nutritional facts of metabolism for supporting dietary supplements. Since I sell supplements and despise drugs; this was fertile feeding grounds for a newsletter.

Hence, I observed “Scientism” in action, week after week. Years ago I published an observation about how often these “scientific” reports stated “surprise” at the study findings, and were forced to change previous opinions.

I also noted how often the published reports varied from the “raw data” in order to bolster opinion over fact. This is a topic of immense consternation in our body politic today when it comes to political backing for decisions by regulatory agencies, which play a dominant role in maintaining our established fascist monopoly.

Alas, that is topic for another time. This piece is more concerned with “basic” concepts, which embroil thoughtlesshumanity in turmoil’s beyond any public education. That last clause is a dig too broad, but easily accepted today; I am not above a little propaganda.

Scientism cannot give us “logos” as a basis to explain life, humanity, and our place in an obviously unfathomable universe. My poor man’s definition of Logos is:  God’s thoughts coalesced about His creation before he spun it into action.

Thus, humanists are in a hole before they start; however they cant see their apparent problem; They blame Christianity for blinding peoples lives. One is familiarized with Logos by reading the Gospel of John.

The opposite is true, of course. Christ opened people’s eyes as nothing else in history; and his philosophy covers every base for every individual—regardless what human organizations and institutions have done to confuse it. All one needs to do is study the new testament and think. Reason, is the basis for Christianity; It is also a quality of Mind, and the linchpin of Logos.

If you are in the market for a philosophical label, May I recommend metaphysical naturalism, which I will endeavor to illustrate with a piece about the gift of mind. Coming soon to a VT post nearby.
